Greetings remixers!

It’s been 15 years since The Get Up Kids first started playing together in a warehouse above a drum store in Kansas City, MO. Soon after that first practice the band recorded and self released their first 7”. Since that time the band has released four acclaimed studio albums, two EPs, one live album and a collection of rarities. They have toured the US, Europe, Australia and Japan to sold out crowds too many times to count. They have been called a major part of what has been called the “second wave of emo” in the 90’s along with bands like Braid and The Promise Ring. They’ve been sited as a major influence to many prominent artists. But, in 2005, after ten years of constant touring, the band called it quits with a “farewell” tour.

Then, in 2008, after what was really an “extended break” they reunited to play an unannounced show at a small bar in their hometown of Kansas City. That went so well that the band decided to go on the road in celebration of the 10-year anniversary of their most popular album “Something To Write Home About”. While the band was rehearsing for the tour they spontaneously decided to record a new album.

Enter “Simple Science” the bands first release since 2004’s “Guilt Show”. The four-song EP that was released in April 2010 is a prelude to the 12-song LP that will be released in the fall of 2010. It marks the band’s return to the studio with longtime producer Ed Rose. It is also the band’s first independent release, on their-own “Flyover Records” since that first 7” so many years ago.

The “Simple Science” EP and the forthcoming album were something of a songwriting experiment. The band would get together in a small room and try to write a song a day. If an idea didn’t instantly click then they would scrap it. The songs were then fleshed out in the studio and recorded to 2” tape, forgoing all the modern digital recording technology that The Black Lodge has to offer. The result is a collection of songs that are fresh and inspired, created by a band that has been given new life and isn’t looking back.

And now it's your turn to show your remix-skills on the second song of the "Simple Science" EP called “Keith Case”. The winning remix will be featured in the Get Up Kid’s Myspace Player and webpage and will be considered for an upcoming release.

Don't forget, you can form discussion groups with your fellow remixers to share inspiration, tech talk or anything else!
